My name is Denise Kelty. I've been a practicing artist since the early 90's and began graphic design around 1996 as a great addition to the many mediums I like to work in. I studied fine art with a concentration in sculpture and followed it up with a second degree in design. I love problem solving, working with all materials and get a great deal of satisfaction from working with my hands, which is why I also enjoy construction remodeling and custom work.
My graphic design services allow me to work with people in a way that helps them find a way to express their creative needs, business and personal, as well as my own. I enjoy the diversity that is brought to the work and those wonderful "ah hah!" moments that can occur when working with other people.
Within the commercial portion of this site I've included commissioned work and custom merchandise that I've created for sale, such as jewelry, photography, sculpture, garments, pottery and more.
My personal work is a constant evolving body of art. The Hare has been the theme of my work for several years now. I often use the hare to represent myself and tell a story. My grandparents raised rabbits for show, so having grown up around them has influenced my work since. I've always been fond of them and accustomed to their mannerisms. Eventually this, in combination with my interest in celtic and native american folklore, became a way for me to express myself.
Even though I've expanded into many other themes, the hare always seems to find it's way back, lately with friends like crows and others. I am typically overwhelmed by the number of interests that intrigue my life. Every day is an opportunity to broaden my perspective. It is this that I like to try to embrace and explore. I'd like to think that my work is continually evolving, and so in short will this web site. The more I learn the more I'll tweek, add, edit and redesign as I see aesthetically fit. I hope that you'll continually enjoy the work and process as you would the metamorphosis of a butterfly.
Do to the large amount of content I have for this sight, and knowing that it's only going to keep growing I have decided to break the site down into two separate groups, commercial work and personal work. I will also be taking down older work from time to time to make room for progress and hopefully keep my best foot forward. This is a slow process, and is currently under way.
If there is a project you would like me to do for you, or artwork that peaks your interest, please send a detailed e-mail including your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get in touch with you as quickly as possible.
You can now find my photography, drawings and illustrations at my Cafe Press Store, a site that allows me to upload my artwork and print on various cool products, like home decor items, apparel, posters prints and more!
Thank you for taking an interest in what I do. I look forward to any positive feedback you may want to share. Come back soon.
